a > Easy setups:

- slide poles into sleeves

- secure poles into pockets

- tension.

And that’s it!

Continuous sleeves allow poles to

easily pass through intersections.

Canopies are factory mounted, and

just a few stakes and guy lines are

needed to pitch any Exped tent.

Color coded poles and sleeves

eliminate guesswork.

Reflective, glow-in-the-dark zipper

pulls are easy to locate.

Round shaped doors are easily

operated with just one hand.

2 types of pole sleeves:

Exterior sleeves for easy setups; or,

interior sleeves for better weather

protection and reduced wind

resistance.

Models with the Exped-developed

“flat pole sleeves“ offer advantages

of both interior and exterior

sleeves. [Vela I, Vela II, Venus II

Extreme, Sirius, Andromeda]

What makes Exped tents so unique?

b > Strong and weatherproof: bombproof

shelters are created by

combining wind shedding designs

with strategically placed, dual

guy points on each sleeve. Lines

attach directly to pole structures for

superior stability in any weather.

Enhanced aerodynamics with Flat or

Interior Pole Sleeve designs.

Totally waterproof shelters with

factory taped seams, polyester core/

cotton wrap thread, and taped or

seamless bathtub floors.

Attention paid to every detail...

c > Excellent ventilation: even in rainy

conditions, condensation is kept to

a minimum by large opposed vents.

This design promotes a chimney

effect to maintain air circulation.

No-See-Um panels on the canopy‘s

doors adjust from inside the tent

to control ventilation. Careful

attention to design ensures there is

no contact between fly and canopy.

e > Integrity: Keep it simple and

reduce weight - care is taken to

use simple, proven designs and

hardware. Examples include toggle

and loop connectors and adjustable

pole tension pockets. Of course, field

repairability goes without saying!

f > Natural, pleasing colors: warm

yellow interiors are pleasant and

relaxing, even when stormy weather

keeps you inside the tent.

Earthy, green color rainflies blend

with nature; or, bright, terracotta

color rainflies are easily spotted in

bad weather or from a distance.

d > Loads of space: unique Exped designs maximize

usable interior space with steep side walls and

large, protected vestibules. Vestibules provide ample

space for storage and cooking*. Models with

dual vestibules and entrances offer easy access

and eliminate “trauma by kick“ to a sleeping tent

mate. At least one inner door is large enough for

two people to sit next to one another.

Canopies can be unhooked to increase vestibule

space. Loops and pockets keep the tent tidy.

*If cooking inside the vestibule, always prime and

light stoves at a safe distance from the tent.


Multi-functional and simple use:

- Inner canopies can stay attached to

rainfly at all times;

- Rainfly can be used alone for storage

or for basic shelter;

- Inner canopy can be used alone in

clear weather, with or without a tarp

cover (pole pockets at the corners enable

this configuration);

- Unhook part of the canopy to increase

the space beneath the fly;

- Numerous zipper sliders allow the

door to be opened in many different

positions.

Freestanding and spacious:

- Most models are either freestanding

or require just a few stakes*. Such

designs enable Exped tents to be easily

moved to a new location or to be

cleaned by shaking overhead. Developed

by Exped, the “ridge tunnel tent“

is a new type of structure that combines

a Tunnel design‘s maximum usable

space with the Dome‘s freestanding

capability.

*With any tent, a few stakes ensure

that a tent is not carried off by

the wind.

Easy maintenance:

- Tent poles‘ end caps remove easily

to adjust the shock cord in changing

weather conditions or to replace

a broken pole section.

- Pole tension pockets are made with

strong, but simple materials (webbing

and a small pole section). In

the event of a failure, such materials

can be repaired any place and do not

depend upon plastic parts that can

break at the worst times.

- All Exped tents include spare parts:

zipper sliders, adhesive patch fabric,

and emergency pole repair segments.

Easy packing:

- Specific length pole sections allow

the packed tent to fit square into

most large packs, and uniform length

pole sections mean that just one section

can address most any situation;

- Long, narrow accessory pockets occupy

small spaces when packed;

- Side entry packsacks surround the

rolled tent without effort or strain.

Quality materials:

- Non-Extreme models‘ rainfly fabric is

strong, lightweight ripstop polyester:

UV-resistant and meets CPAI-84 flame

retardant guidelines. Extra strong PU

coatings on the fabric‘s underside offer

long wearing waterproofness.

Practical packsack. Versatile. Freestanding. Field maintainable.

- Extreme models‘ fly fabric is a strong,

super lightweight, double silicone

coated ripstop nylon with improved

UV- and tear-resistance. However,

silicone coated fabrics do not meet

CPAI-84 fire retardant guidelines. (See

tent models for specifics).

- All Floors are made from durable, taffeta

nylon with heavy PU coatings;

have a waterproof rating of 14+ PSI

(10,000+ mm) water pressure; and are

either factory seam taped or seamless

to maximize strength.

- Mosquito netting is an ultra fine, very

UV-resistant No-See-Um polyester.

- Poles are state-of-the-art extruded,

seamless aircraft DAC 7001-T6 aluminum

- very rigid but soft enough to

yield in strong wind. DAC poles snap

back to position without breakage or

damage to the fly. And DAC poles are

less likely to burr if they do snap together.

- Reliable YKK zippers in the fly and canopy

are sewn smooth side out to reduce

exposure to dirt, which could

cause premature wear.

- Aircraft aluminum stakes are provided

in two grades: V-profile stakes for

hard ground; ultra lightweight, Uprofile

stakes for soft earth.

- Ample Guy Lines include special, adjustable

tensioners that secure around

most fixed objects without complicated

knots. Key lines are provided with

Exped‘s own, Cord Stuffsacks (also

available separately).

- Guy Lines and Zipper Pulls feature silver

colored threads to improve visibility

and help avoid accidents. Zipper

Pulls glow, and are color coded and

reflective for easy handling. Sheaths

and cores can be separated to increase

usable length.

Quality workmanship:

- Lap-felled seams (4 inter-wrapped fabric

layers) are single or double factory

taped. Stress points are reinforced

with extra-duty patches and

are sewn with crossover stitching to

better distribute forces over larger

areas of fabric.

- Thread used throughout is ‘polyester

core, cotton wrap’ that expands when

wet to fill needle holes in edges,

ground reinforcements and silicone

treated fabrics.

Warranty and service:

Exped tents carry a 5 year,

limited warranty on

defects in workmanship

and materials. At its

discretion, Exped will repair

or replace any part

that fails due to manufacturing

defect. Failures

due to normal wear, negligence,

accidents and

acts of nature can usually

be repaired for a nominal

charge. Please see

your outdoor retailer for

details or contact Exped.

a > Large vestibule, easily accessed from inside Vela I, is large

enough for all the gear. The door is easily raised to offer a view

but still protect from the elements.

b > Large floor plan is especially long and wide, making it possible

to bring gear inside or to help out a stranded, second person.

c > Ventilation is maximized with the storm proof design. The rainfly

can be rolled up from either end, and both ends of the canopy

have easily accessed, mesh windows. The roof has a hood

protected vent to improve the chimney effect. And the foot end

is aerodynamically shaped to be completely tied down to face a

high wind.

d > Tie down loops attached to the pole sleeves offer maximum

efficiency.

e > Ingenious, flat pole sleeve improves aerodynamics in wind and

rain. Double seams and stitching offer extreme strength.

f > Setup requires just 2 stakes. Additional tie down loops make Vela

I absolutely storm proof!

two, Solestar cuts excess weight. Still, it offers enough space to comfortably

wait out a rainy day, store extra gear, or cook in the vestibule. [If you must

cook inside Solestar, always prime and light stoves at a safe distance from the

tent].

b > Solestar stands taut with just two arches and three stakes. Poles and sleeves

are color coded for guess-free setups. Inner tent and rainfly structures are fixed

at the front to reduce both weight and setup time!

c > Front vestibule wings open wide, and with the fly rolled forward, Solestar

becomes a comfortable, bugfree shelter.

d > Door tucks into a side pocket, opens for improved ventilation, or functions as

an awning when propped with trekking poles. Or, with one side wing opened,

a protected entrance is created.

e > Storm proof: Flat front pole sleeve and rear inner pole minimize wind

resistance. Numerous, reinforced tie down loops increase stability in stormy

weather. In fact, a secured Solestar has withstood a 150 km/h (94 mph) wind

tunnel test.

+ Orion Extreme: expedition grade shelter.

> Perfect aerodynamics

with poles whose sleeves

are concealed beneath

the rainfly. Orion stays

taut, repels wind and

prevents snow buildup.

Numerous guy line loops

on the pole sleeves

keep Orion stable in any

condition.

a

>

< b

> Condensation is

minimized with

strategic doors and

windows that offer

both incredible air flow

through direct venting

and with a chimney

draft effect. And the

suspended tent design

ensures plenty of space

remains between the fly

and canopy.

> With its freestanding

design, pitch Orion

without stakes; then

move it easily to the

best spot. Cleaning

is easily done by just

lifting overhead and

shaking!

f

a > Easy setup with premounted canopy, continuous and color coded

pole sleeves, and easy adjust tension pole pockets.

b > Easy handling, day or night: zippers have color coded, reflective,

and glow-in-the-dark pulls that open and close with one hand.

c > One door is oversized to let 2 adults sit side by side, and one

vestibule has a small, drying loft for wet gear.

d > Seamless bathtub floor with taped corner seams guarantees

waterproof performance. Fabric resists a water column rating of

14+ PSI (10,000mm).

e > Ventilation hoods protect both doors.

f > Canopy can be used alone, simply by detaching its ring and

toggle system. Re-attaches easily, too.

> Multi-functional...

like all Exped tents:

- use Orion complete

- use just the fly for a

simple covered shelter

- use just the canopy in

mild weather to ponder

a nighttime universe.

> Large, dual vestibules

provide individual

storage space. Reach

stowed gear easily, even

from inside a sleeping

bag.

WOW! A single wall tent with a vestibule for wet gear, room to cook, and space to sit

out a storm! Super sturdy and freestanding thanks to a new pole design*. Strength

and aerodynamics make Polaris the perfect expedition tent!

< a

> Fast setup: just slide

3 color-coded poles into

their sleeves and tension

the pockets; secure

and plant 2-4 stakes.

That’s it!

> Freestanding: The

ridge pole tensions the

tent along its length and

forms the rear vent hood.

> Ingeniously crossed

flat pole sleeves reduce

wind resistance. Double

stitched and taped

parallel seams make for

easy pole handling.

a > Covered vestibule for gear and cooking.

b > Ventilation and views on all 4 sides through door, rear window,

and two offset tunnel vents.

c > Easy handling, day or night: zippers have color coded, reflective,

and glow-in-the-dark pulls that operate easily with just one

hand.

d > Reinforced guyline loops attach directly to the pole sleeves.

Triple guyline flaps on the sides connect to the floor loop.

e > Taffeta nylon floor with fully taped seams and a water column

rating of 14+ PSI (10,000mm).

f > Designed by experience: World class expeditionists like Erhard

Lorétan, Jean Troillet, Stephan Siegrist, Sébastien Gay, plus

numerous “regular” adventurers are godfathers to the Polaris.

> Single wall fabric

of highly breathable

and ultra-waterproof

eVENT® 3 layer PTFE

laminate specific for

tents. Vestibule of

lightweight and tear

resistant ripstop nylon

with a slicone coating.

> Fully freestanding:

Full length ridge pole

supports the structure

and forms the vestibule.

This makes Polaris a

full, freestanding tent.

Of course, such easy

setup also means that

teardown is fast and

easy! And, for situations

in which it is hard to

stake out guylines, the

poles can be braced

together from the inside

using the guylines.

Calling all enthusiasts... want to travel light? Need fast set up? Demand years of use?

Then Sirius is the tent for you! Just ask the experts at Backpacker (USA) and Outdoor

Magazin (Germany)!

Sirius

+ Sirius Extreme: Fast! Light! Sturdy!

> Sirius Extreme was barely a reality by the time it had received 2 major awards:

Backpacker (USA) bestowed its coveted “Editors‘ Choice 2003“ (first time ever

to a non-US tent company); and Outdoor Magazin (Germany) where it garnered

highest ranking in its in depth, tunnel tent test!

“The air is definitely

thinner in the ranks for

top of the line tents,

but Exped, the ingenious

team from Switzerland,

proves with its Sirius

Extreme that other

brands must take them

seriously!“

Outdoor Magazin, January 2003

person shelters - but it’s

so spacious it feels like a

three-person tent.”

- Backpacker, April 2003

> Flat pole sleeve

reduces resistance to

wind, snow and driving

rain.

a > Fast and easy setup: Exped’s innovative flat sleeves are accessed

from outside the fly and end with adjustable tension pole

pockets. And with the canopy already attached, setup goes

quickly: slide poles into the sleeves; seat ends into the pockets;

tension. With just 4 stakes to set, sleep is not far off!

b > Storm proof: Flat pole sleeve technology makes Sirius more

aerodynamic and strengthens the pole sleeve seams. For bad

weather conditions, ample loops and pre-mounted guy lines are

included (stored in Cord Stuffsacks). Double guy line loops grip

the pole sleeves to keep the fly from flapping in bad weather.

c > Large, adjustable door: tucks away into a side pocket; opens

to a variety of positions for ventilation; or, use poles and guy

lines for covered protection. A side wing can also be used as an

entrance.

d > Venting and viewing: windows open completely from inside

Sirius and are reinforced with mosquito netting to block the

bugs. Windows help to reduce condensation in rain, and simple

supports of pole repair tube keep the vents open at all times.

e > Easy handling all the time: zippers have color coded, reflective,

glow-in-the-dark pulls and are easily operated with one hand.

f > Multi-Use: Canopy is easily unhooked and pushed back for some

extra floor space, or it separates easily for use as a lightweight,

bug shelter. Rainfly offers basic shelter when reduced weight

is needed. And of course used complete... the award winning

design of the Sirius Extreme!

“Flat sleeve technology” makes Andromeda very aerodynamic, strong, and super

tight. A cavernous vestibule makes it an incredible storm shelter, but even with all

its features and size, it‘s amazingly easy to use!

a > Huge vestibule - large enough to hide a bicycle!

A multitude of loops allows a line to be strung

inside Andromeda, and two people can sit

comfortably in the dry vestibule in the event of

bad weather.

b > Easy setup with Exped’s unique flat sleeves. Poles

slide easily from outside the fly and seat into

convenient, adjustable pockets. And to make it

even easier, the inner canopy comes pre-attached.

With 4 stakes, setup is complete in just a few

minutes!

c > For ventilation and views, windows can be opened

completely from inside and are reinforced with

mosquito netting to stop the bugs. The venting

also helps minimize condensation in rain. Window

supports keep ports open at all times and conceal

small sections of pole repair tube.

c > Loads of storage space: in addition to the huge vestibule there

are pockets, laundry lines and a zippered loft. Even the roof can

be used to air a sleeping bag or dry clothes.

d > Protective hoods above the entrance and rear vent allow air

circulation in all weather conditions and can be adjusted from

into matched sleeves; each pole secures into

a tensioning pocket; corners and guy lines are

staked. The inner tents are delivered pre-attached,

which means that‘s it! No separate parts to

negotiate.

b > Separate spaces large enough for 3 adults and 2

small kids offer many options. Unhook the smaller

shelter to increase the storage area.

c > 2 tie-down loops on each side of the pole sleeves

assure tautness, even in high winds. Guy lines are

factory installed and store into Cord Stuffsacks.

d > Rainfly is made from ripstop polyester with a

heavy polyurethane coating, which is both UVresistant

and flame retardant. Seams are factory

taped, and pole sleeves are double taped for

added weather integrity.

Arc Tarp is a protective cover for rain or a shady spot for sun. Use it to cover gear, bikes

and visitors. Used with two poles, Arc Tarp creates a large, airy covered area. Without

poles, it is a huge tarp. Width and height adjust - depending on configuration.

> Lots of space with

minimal weight: With

little effort, Arc Tarp

attaches quickly to most

tents and creates added

covered space. Ideally

suited for use with Exped

Sirius, Orion, Venus,

Andromeda, Auriga,

Southern Cross, Solestar,

Venus III, Cassiopeia and

Big Bear.

Arc Tarp

think of it as a huge veranda for your tent

> Fast setup: slide

one or both poles into

sleeves and fix into the

tension pockets. Secure

the cord web to the tent

with the mini-biners and

stake down the guylines.

That’s it!

> Flat pole sleeves

reduce wind resistance,

while making Arc Tarp

easier to use. Double

stitched, parallel seams

offer extra strength.

>

c

>

Numerous applications:

> Width and height are variable by

adjusting the radius of the arc.

> With two poles, Arc Tarp can be set

up alone to create a large sheltered

area.

> Sun screen for the garden or beach.

> Set up between two tents, two Arc

Tarps facing one another create a

huge family shelter to reduce the

need for a special family tent.

> As a standing height rainfly over a

netting tent, e.g. Southern Cross or

any Exped tent canopy.

> As kitchen tent for cooking or

dining.

b

a > Fast set up: A cord running through loops at

backside with numerous mini-carabiners attaches

easily and tightly to any ‚mother tent‘.

b > Reinforced guyline loops are set directly onto the

pole sleeves for extra stability. Inner and outer

guyline loops make Arc Tarp extremely versatile.

c > Cord Stuffsacks eliminate the chaos of tangled

lines.

d > Fabric is ripstop polyester with a thick PU coating

and factory taped seams. Fabric is also UV

resistant, DWR treated and flame retardant.

e > Besides being a tent extension or tarp with poles,

Arc Tarp functions well as a lightweight traditional

tarp, when the poles are left at home.

> Arc Tarp is the ideal family tent solution: instead

of a big family tent, just connect 2 smaller tents

with 1 or even 2 Arc Tarps. And when the kids

grow older and want their own tent, let them have

one of the small tents on their own.

trekking poles, skis, branches, snowshoes, or even

a pack. Integrated storage sack doubles as an

anchor for solid, secure setups.
